Re: [X1] Xfinity TV on X1 Platform and X1 Remote Control App!

I live in Northern Indiana and have 1 Motorola RNG200N and 2 Motorola RNG150N. I know eventually I'll be getting a new guide for these boxes, but I'm confused which of the new guides I might receive. There is Onscreen guide 2.0 and now this x1 guide. Is there any way of knowing what will get distributed to my boxes? (although this might not happen for a few years though)

Not sure about the new Motorola RNG boxes, but there is a thread in this forum on On-Screen Guide 2.0 for older ones: »[STB] On-Screen Guide 2.0+ on Motorola (legacy) boxes?

from what i can tell, on-screen guide 2.0 is for selected SA-Cisco areas and X1 is for selected motorola areas (X1 probably used to be called on screen guide 3.0).

some links to compare:

Guide 2.0 »info.xfinity.com/Portal/content/···ult.aspx

X1

I think the new guides will eventually be available in both Motororola and SA/Cisco areas based on the following comments in Comcast's Ted Hodgins, Sr. Director, Video Product Development - Navigation, in Media & Entertainment, "New Guide for Scientific Atlanta Cable Boxes" blog:

quote:
. . .

Other SA/Cisco areas that are in states that I have not listed above are not currently targeted for On-Screen Guide 2.0 this year and some of those areas (that I have not listed) may get our On-Screen Guide 3.0 (also called the X1 guide) this year or next year.

The long term plan is to get all of our newest cable boxes (regardless of hardware manufacturer or geography) onto a common guide starting in 2013 to provide a consistent experience.

On-Screen Guide 2.0 is NOT currently scheduled for the Motorola footprint (see »Re: New Guides for SA/Cisco Areas (Info from Ted Hodgins Blog) ). On-Screen Guide 2.0 is a way to introduce significant improvements and new features (including AnyRoom DVR) to the Cisco footprint (see »Re: New Guides for SA/Cisco Areas (Info from Ted Hodgins Blog) ).

Comcast is deploying the X1 guide (also known as On-Screen Guide 3.0) to select customers in Boston using the Pace box.

The newer Motorola DCX series of boxes in some markets are scheduled at some point in 2013 to get the new X1 guide .

Comcast continues to test and trial the new cloud-based X1 guide on the Cisco RNG cable boxes and the plan would be to deliver the X1 experience on the Cisco RNG 200N and the Cisco 150N cable boxes by the end of 2013.

As stated above since we are in the Motorola area we should be getting the X1 guide. Too bad we still have to wait till sometime in 2013.
